Quick Tumblr Thread: Intellectual Elitism Gets Called Out

This quick and funny Tumblr thread addresses the absurd and unnecessary nature of intellectual elitism. Just cause some writing isn't the most popular thing in school (or anywhere else) doesn't mean that it doesn't possess value. Some folks accept that, some folks don't. If you're looking for another Tumblr rabbit hole to fall down, check out the recent thread that looks at the discreet genius behind Nick Fury, in a famous scene from Captain America: The First Avenger.

If that didn't fill your cup, then check out these Tumblr gems of historical persuasion.

Writer Tweets Hilarious "Bot Written" Queer Eye Script

Keaton Patti is a wonderfully weird writer who's behind other "bot written" scripts such as this John Wick script, as well as this Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives script. He claims that each one is written by a computer program that has consumed over a thousand hours of their respective content, but since the amount of content for each doesn't come close to a thousand hours, we're not so sure about that process. Either way, we love these.
